SAN DIEGO San Diego homeowners Bill and Nancy Bamberger explain why they voted against Proposition 13.
The Bambergers are among the 8 percent of homeowners in San Diego County who have owned their homes since the proposition passed in 1978. Prop 13 rolled back property taxes, capped them at 1 percent of the purchase price, and limited yearly increases to 2 percent.
Check out our companion report of Jerzy and Jolanta Lewak, who voted in support of Prop 13.
